I'm ready to move on. Please don't search for me. Please just let me go.
The note on the kitchen table shatters Jay Wentworth's world into bits. Ellie is his lover, his soul mate, his best friend...she's the woman who stood by him through the aftermath of a horrible explosion, the woman he's planning to propose to. He'd do anything for her…except let her go. With his fierce protectiveness kicked into overdrive, he teams up with Ellie's Hotel Serafina boss, billionaire Wyatt Christiansen, to find her. Ellie is family at the casino and they take care of their own.
Ellie is devastated when her secret past finally catches up with her. It was stupid to think she could bury the mistakes of her youth and find happiness with a good man. Leaving Jay rips her heart to shreds, but it's the only way she can protect him from the dangerous people she once ran with. And deep down, she fears he'll never be able to forgive her for hiding her past from him.
The closer Jay gets to the truth about Ellie, the deeper he plunges into danger. He'll move heaven and earth to save her, but if she can't trust in Jay's love it might be too late for both of them.

I am Tammy Payne. I am an avid book reader and I also have a book blog :)
Yes I would listen again. The story flows smoothly and the narrators are plain and easy to understand
Jay He is a Alpha male totally. He is protective, caring and loyal.
Ellie by Holly Fielding I have to say was my favorite
Nothing at all its a great book name and it fits
Sin City, Suspense and Sex! What an awesome combination! Sensual Surrender is the second book in the Serafina Sin City Series. This book features Ellie and Jay. Ellie has created a new life for herself . But, mistakes she made in the past come back to haunt her. When Ellie’s past catches up with her rather than involve Jay (her longtime live-in lover) she decides to try and handle it on her own, basically leaving Jay a “Dear John” note. Jay is the ultimate alpha hero and someone you would want to have in your corner day or night. This is a well written and narrated romantic suspense book that will keep you avidly listening until you are finished. Holly Fielding and Ryan Hudson do a great job narrating this book. They seem to bring the characters to life with their voice inflection and nuances. There were some small differences between the narration and the actual book but nothing that detracts from the telling of the story.
I want more!!
I loved both Jay and Ellie, he is strong, protective and totally alpha male and Ellie is sweet, strong, and tries to do the right thing.
I really don't have a favorite scene, I loved it all!
This book held my attention from the beginning, I couldn't wait to finish it so I could find out what happened next.
I really enjoyed this book, I love all books by Katie Reus, I loved the audio version of this book as much as I did reading it. Ryan Hudson and Holly Fielding did a great job as a narrator. Ryan Hudson, was awesome! However, I wish that Holly Fielding would have talked a little faster, it seemed to me that she was talking r-e-a-l-l-y slow.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I didn't like this one as much as I enjoyed book 1. The heroine left! WTF!!! Why leave when you have all these alpha men surrounding you for protection... I mean... I get it..she wanted to protect her guy...but c'mon!
Anyway.. this was still a good listen. The smexy time was simply great... the action and adventure was not half bad either.
Narration... well I hate dual narration...but other than that.. I was ok... nothing to complain about...
Worth a credit or sale!
Jay and Ellie have great chemistry in this story of trust, love, and family.
All of the characters that Ryan voices are wonderful. But Wyatt is definitely one of my favorites.
I love this series. Full of suspense, romance, and plot twists. Ryan Hudson's voice is so compelling and forceful. He masters these characters. While Holly Fielding is a good narrator, I did not connect with her version of the characters, especially her male characters.Overall, a highly recommended story and series.
What I'm Reading
It would be hard to say if I would recommend to a friend, because it took me a little time to get into the story with one of the narrators. Since I had already read the book, I guess I had envision a different voice for Ellie. I did enjoyed the story when I read and it's a pretty good story.
The most memorable moments were when they each of the character was dreaming on past experience.
I honestly had a hard time with Holly Fielding's narration with the story. Part of the my problem was a slight accent. Most people wouldn't notice it. I didn't mind her narration when it came to some of the scumbag characters, but when it came to Ellie it just didn't work for me. Now I did enjoyed Ryan Hudson's narration. I like how his voice fluctuated with the different characters.
Received an audio copy from the author.
Ellie has found happiness. She loves her job and her lover, Jay. He is the best thing that has happened to her. Her life is perfect until she receives a threatening phone call from an ex-boyfriend. He demands that she help him steal from her employer and friend, Wyatt Christiansen. Ellie is trapped. What can she do? Is she strong enough to leave? Ellie and Jay complete each other. They are a passionate couple who need to be together. Their relationship is deeply sensual and very romantic. The suspense-filled plot and strong characters kept me riveted. I love that Katie included people that we've met before. It was like taking a trip back home to catch up with friends. The action is non-stop. I must admit that the ending took me by surprise. Katie Reus is a excellent writer. This story is skillful crafted and left me wanting more.
For me the audio version added to my enjoyment. Holly Fielding and Ryan Hudson added so much to the story with their narration. I felt like I was in the center of all the action.
This is a memorable story with the audio adding more depth and emotion to the action. I'm a fan of Katie Reus and of audio books.
REVIEW PROVIDED BY: Kelly
What is one to do when the wolves coming knocking on your door? If you are Ellie, you run. You run and leave everyone you care about behind. But that was the wrong move. Because Jay is not going to let Ellie run.
Another great story from Katie. Sensual Surrender has a quick start and just keeps going until the very end. Jay and Ellie are a great couple. Although I wish that Ellie would have confided in Jay before she ran. But that was part of what made this story so good.
I had the pleasure of reading this book before I received this audio version. I am glad to say that I did. While I loved the story of Jay and Ellie, I didn’t not like this audio version of the story.
It was not the story itself by any means. The story that Katie wrote was still just as good. I just did not care for Holly Fielding as a narrator. Ryan Hudson again did an amazing job! But with Ms. Feilding her reading style was too slow and withdrawn for me. It. Felt. Like. She. Was. Read. Each. Word. As. It’s. Own. Sentence. My other issue was the voices of the character. They just didn’t fit the voice that I had in my head.
I am sorry to say that I will not listen to any books narrated by Ms. Fielding in the future.
I received a complimentary audio copy of the book from Katie Reus & Audible in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
I'm loving the Sin City series...and this audio book just delivered totally! What I'd call novella length it gives us a complete story with all the emotions & romance us lovers of the genre want, without compromising a thing for the shorter length.
It actually picks ups with the hero, Jay, and his heroine, Ellie, having been lovers for about a year. They're completly into one another ~ but Ellie has a past she's not exactly been keeping a secret from Jay, but that she's never bothered to share, either. And that past has come back to haunt her; in the form of an Ex from long ago who wants Ellie to either give him inside info from the Hotel Serafina ( where she's executive assistant for Wyat Christensen, the owner ) or he'll reveal all to not only Jay, but her boss, Wyatt.
In an attempt to shield everyone from repercussions of her past Ellie tries to just dissapear ~ but things don't go quite as planned, and she's got a lot of shoring up w/ Jay after her little stunt and not trusting him.
LOVED it! The narration is excellent ~ it has both a man and a woman narrating, alternating POV from chapter to chapter, and it SO worked for me! I loved that she didn't try to build the whole relationship in the novella, but gave us background for the players, and built us up to where they currently are in their relationship.
I'm such a fan of Katie's books, and love that she continues to write books I not only love, but that as soon as I'm done I'm off to search out the next in the series.
